6 Super Yummy and Healthy Smoothie Bowls Worth Trying

By: Malak Atwa

Since it’s technically “summer”, and health is a huge priority right now, I’ve been trying to venture out of the usual fruit rings corn flakes breakfast bowl and trying out some new breakfast ideas. And, thanks to many many trial and errors – and the internet – I discovered the smoothie bowl. It’s not just an instagram trend but a refreshing, healthy and super easy way to get a nutritional breakfast that will leave you feeling actually full, but not too full that you’re left bloated the rest of your morning. Here are some of my personal favorite recipes that you can try out for yourself! 

All of the following recipes are one serving only.
